    First day out on the trails with the helmetcam

    Yesterday was a pretty nice day out so my friend Taylor and I decided to go to the local trail system up in the Wildcat Hills of Western Nebraska and test it out.

    Feedback would be nice. Enjoy!

    I'm using a GoPro hero. The 5mp one. Besides keeping my head steadier, how can I get it to not be so shaky?

    Yeah this was taken just before dark. It gets dark pretty early here now and we hustled out to the hills after school got out to test it out. This sunday if the snow clears we will be out all day and get some better footage

    I've been researching helmet cams for mt biking recently and didn't know about this one. Biggest downside I see is the camera being so high above the helmet. The dark pictures will always be an issue with lower priced cameras. Overall not bad.

    Based upon your other video, you also need to learn how to drive:

    Are you the same JoshBurnett that is in this video?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zPeERPFjN6M
    If you are, I would say you are in no position to criticize other people's Youtube videos.

    Nope. Not my video.

    Update, you still need to work on your videos, and your driving.

    I never posted any video of how to drive.

    I linked to the OP's video that is an example of how not to drive, but it looks like he got embarrassed and removed the video.

    Key phrase:

    "Based upon your other video, you also need to learn how to drive"

    Reading comprehension is a wonderful thing.
